What can you use weaving for?
Free weaving, also known as no-loom weaving, is a technique that doesn’t require any kind of loom, and can be used to make everything from baskets to jewelry and rugs. It is ideal for weavers who don’t want to invest in a loom, or prefer the organic shapes that are sometimes associated with the craft.
How many loops does it take to make a potholder?
Removing the potholder from the loom
Pass the hook through the adjacent loop and pull it off the loom so there are two loops on the hook. Using a twisting motion, pull the second loop through the first loop. (It can help to use your fingers to stretch out the first loop as you pass the second through.)
Can you make your own potholder loops?
Making potholder loops

Is weaving easy?

Can you weave without a loom?
What’s great is that you don’t need to buy a loom or have a lot of fancy supplies – all you really need is a piece of cardboard and some yarn to start weaving. And of course you can never have enough yarn! A few tips: Make sure that the different colors of yarn you use are the same thickness as each other.
